Chorus: G D E /---/---/---

I woke up this mornin' frozen nearly dead,
So galdarned cold I couldn't get out of bed;
As I lay there shiverin' as cold as I could be,
Suddenly a revelation came to me.

I gotta find me a woman with a chainsaw,
To spend the winter with me;
If I could find me a woman with a chainsaw,
Then all night long I would stoke her fire, yessiree

I put an ad down at the Co-op, a notice on the stump,
I don't care if she's skinny, I don't care if she's plump;
I don't care if she's pretty or ugly as sin,
If she's got a chainsaw she can move right in.

I gotta find me a woman with a chainsaw,
To spend the winter with me;
If I could find me a woman with a chainsaw,
Then all night long I would stoke her fire, yes indeed

I'd treat her sweet and gentle, and we would never fight,
If she went out with someone else I wouldn't get uptight;
She can just do her thing, and I can do just mine,
And she and me and that machine we'd get along just fine.

I gotta find me a woman with a chainsaw,
To spend the winter with me;
If I could find me a woman with a chainsaw,
Then all night long I would stoke her fire, yessirree.

I've got a cabin in the mountains, a Chevy pick-up truck,
With stereo and 4-wheel drive to pull us through the muck;
I've got a hundred pounds of soy beans, a barrel of brown rice,
A dozen cords of firewood sure would be nice.

I gotta find a woman with a chainsaw,
To spend the winter with me;
If I could find a woman with a chainsaw,
And all night long I would stoke her fire, yes indeed
All night long, I’d pile it higher
Yes all night long I would stoke her fire, yes indeed
